Were You Hurt In A Car Wreck?
You need a board-certified trial lawyer on your side
After a crash, everything changes. In an instant, you may be left seriously injured. Your recovery may take weeks or months, or you may even be permanently disabled. Between medical bills, lost wages, property damage and other expenses, the financial cost of a single accident can be overwhelming - and that's while you're trying to physically recover.
Unfortunately, car insurance companies often try to treat accident victims like vehicles, not people. They think a single, relatively small payment will "fix" you and afterward you'll be fine. They overlook, or deliberately ignore, the long-term cost of the crash. That's not justice. That's why you need your own legal counsel fighting for your rights.

Auto accidents may seem like simple cases. But even if the other driver was clearly at fault - for instance, if you were in a rear-end collision - things are rarely as clear as they seem. The insurance company may try to downplay the extent of your injuries or claim they were due to a pre-existing condition. And if fault is disputed, expect the other driver and the insurance company to fight to reduce your compensation.
Meanwhile, you're trying to focus on your recovery. If you don't have health insurance, or if your insurance doesn't cover all of your medical expenses, we'll work with your healthcare providers to get the medical care you need through an attorney's lien arrangement. We know how to find the best providers to make sure you get the care you need, and we'll take care of your legal issues so that you can focus on your recovery.

Even though rear-end accidents usually happen at low speeds, the injuries sustained can be severe. Whiplash can cause traumatic brain injuries. Internal injuries can be serious or even life-threatening. Don't let the insurance companies downplay your injury. Hold the motorist who rear-ended you - and his or her insurance company - accountable. Call Chad Jones Law, P.C. today.
When another vehicle drives the wrong way and causes a head-on collision, the consequences can be tragic. Head-on collisions are some of the most serious accidents we see at Chad Jones Law, P.C. because of the sheer force involved. That's why you need an experienced attorney who knows how to handle catastrophic cases. You need Chad E. Jones.
A car is said to be T-boned when another vehicle strikes its side, usually at an intersection. Broadside accidents are exceptionally dangerous because the side of the vehicle offers much less protection than the front or rear. You or a loved one may have sustained serious injuries. We can hold the driver who T-boned you accountable. Call today.
Sideswipe collisions usually happen on the highway as vehicles merge or change lanes. With the high speeds involved, these collisions can be devastating, especially when a larger vehicle hits a smaller vehicle. Motorists have a responsibility to stay in their own lanes, and when they fail to meet that responsibility, we fight for justice. Reach out to Chad Jones Law, P.C.
Rollovers can be some of the most dangerous accidents on the road, especially at high speeds. You or a loved one may have been severely hurt when a roof collapsed or after hitting a vehicle that had already rolled over. If another motorist was responsible for your rollover, we can help. Chad Jones Law, P.C. will thoroughly investigate and fight for the compensation you need.
Unfortunately, car crashes are a leading cause of accidental death in Texas and nationwide. It's never easy to deal with the loss of a loved one, but fatal car crashes can be especially devastating because they happen so suddenly. With an experienced and compassionate attorney on your side, your family can fight for the compensation needed to provide for the people left behind. Call Chad Jones Law, P.C. for a free, confidential consultation.
Distracted Driving Wrecks
Distracted driving is an increasingly common cause of accidents in the Bryan-College Station area thanks in large part to mobile phones. Texting or talking on the phone while driving often leads to car wrecks. But distracted driving includes many other causes as well. Here are some other common distracted driving factors:
- Eating behind the wheel
- Adjusting the radio
- Talking to passengers
- Applying makeup
Regardless of the cause, distracted driving can be exceptionally dangerous. Distracted drivers often cause rear-end accidents because they aren't paying attention to the vehicles in front of them. If a distracted driver crosses a center line, the result may be a head-on collision.
Motorists have a responsibility to keep their eyes on the road. If the driver who hit you was distracted, you may have a strong legal case - but you have to prove it. We'll interview witnesses and review cell phone records to prove that the driver who hurt you wasn't paying attention to the road, and we'll fight for full compensation for your injuries.
Drunk Driving Wrecks
For decades, motorists have known about the dangers of drinking and driving, yet some still choose to drink and put others at risk. Drunk drivers are involved in a huge number of catastrophic and fatal accidents because alcohol makes it harder for them to respond to road conditions. Often, drunk drivers cause devastating head-on collisions and T-bone accidents.
You may think that because the driver who hit you was arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), you'll be all set. Think again. The police don't work for you; their job is to prosecute offenders, not to get compensation for victims. Even if it's clear that the drunk driver who hit you was at fault, you still need an attorney's help to get full compensation for your injuries. That's why you need to call Chad Jones Law, P.C. right away.
Asleep at the Wheel
Between college students pulling all-nighters and working adults who put in long hours, it's understandable that many people in the College Station area are physically exhausted. However, that doesn't give them a right to get behind the wheel and put others at risk. Driving while fatigued is as dangerous as driving drunk, and the consequences can be even more severe. That's because asleep-at-the-wheel drivers generally don't hit the brakes before impact, causing collisions at full speed.
That same tendency can be the key to winning your case after an asleep-at-the-wheel accident. There usually aren't any skid marks at the scene precisely because the driver didn't hit the brakes. We'll also interview witnesses, including people who may have seen the driver leave home or work while exhausted, and review the driver's own statements - asleep-at-the-wheel drivers usually have no memory of the wreck. Our legal team will prove to the insurance that the other driver was at fault and fight to get you full compensation for your injuries.
While we understand that many motorists want to get where they're going faster, speed limits exist for a reason. At higher speeds, drivers have less time to react to changing circumstances and avoid obstacles - and there's always the risk that they will lose control entirely. High speeds also lead to severe injuries because of the amount of force involved.
Even if the driver who hit you was cited for speeding, don't assume that you'll get the compensation you need. Insurance companies will do everything they can to reduce your claim or even blame the accident on you. You need an attorney who will work fast to protect your legal rights. You need Chad Jones Law, P.C.
Heavy rain, hail, fog and other weather conditions can make the roads riskier for everyone. That's why motorists have a responsibility to slow down and stay safe in inclement weather. When they don't, everyone on the road is in danger. And when a vehicle goes out of control due to the conditions, devastating injuries may follow.
Just because your accident was weather-related doesn't mean Mother Nature was solely to blame. Call Chad Jones Law, P.C. today. We may be able to demonstrate that the driver who hit you was driving recklessly or at an unsafe speed. Our team will work hard to help you take home the compensation, and the justice, that you deserve.
Under Texas law, all drivers are required to have auto liability insurance. However, some drivers choose to break the law and put others in danger of financial ruin. An accident involving an uninsured driver can leave you on the hook for thousands of dollars in damages with no practical way to recoup those losses. And even if the other motorist does have insurance, there may not be enough coverage to pay for the full cost of your wreck.
Fortunately, if you have uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage on your policy, you should be able to file a claim with your own insurance company. Unfortunately, just because you're dealing with your own insurance doesn't mean you'll be treated fairly. We can help you file a claim for the full cost of your accident and explore any other avenues of compensation as well. You need Chad Jones Law, P.C. to help with your complex uninsured motorist claim.
